Meeting organization and scientific animation

  • JOBIM the annual french conference on computational biology was organised this year by Genscale. C. Lemaitre and P. Peterlongo coordinated the organisation comittee. JOBIM 2012 took place from the 3rd to the 6th of June at Université Rennes 1 and gathered 375 participants mainly from France and french-speaking countries, bringing together researchers from the mathematical, computational and life sciences. The program was of high quality, including 7 international key-note speakers and 33 selected communications, along with 112 exposed posters and 6 industrial partners, participating through communications and exhibitions. This conference is a cornerstone in the French (speaking) computational biology research. It enables the whole community to meet, to share scientific results and to organize the discipline. Moreover, it provided a large visibility to the host city and to the organizing team. [web site: http://jobim2012.inria.fr/] .

  • Seminar A weekly seminar of bioinformatics is organized within the laboratory. Attendees are member of the ex-symbiose team (now teams Genscale, Dyliss and Genouest), biologists from Brittany and computer scientists from the laboratory. [web site: http://symbiose.irisa.fr/symbiose-seminars]

  • Discussion group on NGS This working group brings together biologists and computational scientists, mainly from Rennes. Approximatively every two months, it enables to share experiences, raise new questions or propose news solutions about NGS issues. This groups is highly appreciated, between 40 and 50 persons attend this events and some from distant sites (Roscoff, Nantes) follow the meeting through visioconference.

  • Sessions organised at ISMP 2012 Sessions “Bioinformatics and Combinatorial Optimization I” and “Combinatorial Optimization: Distance geometry applications” were organised at the 21st International Symposium on Mathematical Programming (ISMP 2012) in Berlin. http://ismp2012.mathopt.org/

  • Winter School : Algorithms in Structural Bio-informatics, was co-organised by R. Andonov in december 2012 at Inria Sophia Antipolis.
